TalkTalk TV customers will be able to access Sky Sports 5 when it launches next month.

The new channel - which will become the home of live European football for pay-TV broadcaster Sky - will be available to YouView viewers as part of the Sky Sports TV Boost.

All Essentials TV and Plus TV broadband package subscribers have the opportunity to sign up for the premium add-on on a rolling one-month basis.

The TV Boost - which offers full access to the Sky Sports platform - is available to TalkTalk TV users with a YouView set-top box from £30 per month.

Customers don't need to sign up on a long-term basis - they can access Sky Sports for one month at a time, if they so wish.

Sky Sports 5 will be available as part of the Sky Sports TV Boost from launch day on August 12th 2014.

Viewers will be able to watch 75 live matches across five European competitions during the first five weeks on air, including the UEFA Super Cup between Real Madrid and Sevilla.

Sky Sports 5 is also set to show games from Spain's La Liga, the Netherlands' Eredivisie, the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Euro 2016 qualifiers during August and September.

This means TalkTalk TV customers with a flexible Sky Sports subscription have plenty to look forward to over the opening weeks of the 2014-15 campaign.

As well as European football on the new channel, there is plenty more live action for Sky Sports subscribers to enjoy.

YouView users taking out the TV Boost can also watch live Premier League football, international and domestic cricket - including England's ongoing Test series against India - F1 motor racing, Super League rugby, PDC darts, golf, boxing and more.
